Kiki Dee Posted January 14, 2020 Report Share Posted January 14, 2020 No specific challenge as yet; just getting back into the swing of things. But this time, I'm playing for keeps. One major advantage this time around: although it's almost 2y since I worked out, and 3y since I was active on NF, my diet is probably in the best shape it's ever been. I never lost the good food habits I developed here previously - I meal plan, meal prep, avoid processed foods, always bring my own lunch to work, and my gliadin allergy means 90% of fast foods/packaged foods are a no-go anyway. I'm no longer paleo though, I'm moving more in the vegetarian direction. Pescetarian at this point, though I will eat meat if I'm socialising and I would otherwise be difficult to cater for. (Ultimately I need to be gluten-free, the meat thing is just a preference, so I'll make it as easy as I can on people!). Tonight was my first session back in the gym. I dug out my old program and just pulled everything way back. I have not felt so physically and mentally good in months. Amazing. I knew I'd missed it, but I hadn't realised just how much. No wonder I've been feeling rubbish. Jelly legs though - I am going to be a very sore and sorry person tomorrow! For now, I'm aiming to workout (lift) at least three times per week. I might try and rope the older two kids into doing a NF yoga session with me tomorrow - they're home on school holidays but we're stuck inside with bushfire smoke so it'd be good for them to move. And I'll definitely benefit from a stretch! 3 Quote My ramblings in my first Battle Log First Challenge - May 2016, Second Challenge (incomplete) - June 2016, Third (Utterly Abandoned) Challenge - December 2016 My New and Improved Battle Log Current Challenge Link to comment
